Correlated Query is nothing but the subquery whose output is depending on the inner query used in that query.Correlated query is the query which is executed after the outer query is executed.The outer query is always dependent on inner query.
The approach of the correlated subquery is bit different than normal subqueries.

In normal subqueries the inner queries are executed first and then the outer query is executed but in Correlated Subquery outer query is always dependent on inner query so first outer query is executed then inner query is executed.Correlated Subqueries always uses operator like Exist,Not Exist,IN,Not IN.

Correlated subqueries are used for row-by-row processing. Each subquery is executed once for every row of the outer query.
A correlated subquery is evaluated once for each row processed by the parent statement. The parent statement can be a SELECT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement.
A correlated subquery requires the outer query to be executed first, the correlated subquery must run once for every row in the outer query. This causes correlated subqueries to be less efficient than other subqueries.
